I would like to plant a Japanese maple indoors but I worry about sap from the tree damaging our rugs and furniture. Is the Japanese maple a plant that I need to worry about sap dropping?

You can keep it in a container. Japanese maples grow slowly and therefore make a great container tree indoors. If you are worried about sap, you can set the potted tree on a plant skirt. You can also set it outdoors during warm weather, when sap is most prevalent.
